Title:Currents, temperature, conductivity, and pressure data from the Gulf of Farallones from moorings deployed by the FARNELLA, GLORITA, DE STEIGUER, and POINT SUR from May 2, 1989 to November 5, 1989 (NODC Accession 0067569)
Abstract:Three moorings were deployed for one year on the continental slope off San Francisco CA to monitor the flow of water and suspended materials through this region of the coastal ocean. This program was supported by the EPA in part to monitor the transport of material dredged from San Francisco Bay within and through to their newly-established deep-water disposal site.
